The Industry Executive Committee members participate in a variety of activities that enhance the government-industry working relationship on the local level. These activities include planning and administrative support to Commanders at Wright-Patterson AFB (WPAFB) for the multiple industry and defense related briefings and regular informal luncheons where key USAF personnel address topics of current interest.
HQ AFMC, AFLCMC, AFRL, NASIC, and AFSAC Directorate facilitate a number of annual meetings on WPAFB where senior industry executives join with their Air Force counterparts to discuss issues of common interest. The Industry Executive Committee works closely with Air Force leadership to identify forum topics and potential speakers and panel members, and provides administrative support to the forum proceedings.
